A Beach Preview

Last weekend we went to visit our family in NJ, and while we were there, we got to sink our toes into the sand!

We went to the boardwalk with Nanny and Aunt Maureen, and the kids were thrilled to run around on the beach.  While the water was a bit chilly, it certainly made us all excited for our Myrtle Beach vacation this summer!

Such a nice preview of what the summer will bring!

In other news, we are expecting another baby BOY!  We are thrilled!  Can’t wait to meet the little man, but definitely need to think hard about some names!

You know I love me some boy!!! I'm so excited for your family!! Boy names are so much harder than girls names. I can't wait to hear what you pick out!

I don't understand your adversion to the names your children have already picked for their unborn brother! LOL! Love the pictures. Especially Gigi jumping in the air. What a great bond those two have. So adorable.
Boy names are tricky. I remember being torn between Preston and Nicholas (so different). My kid is definitely a Preston. I am sure you guys will think of the perfect name.
See you next weekend!

I love the beach pictures! So fresh and promising. I would love to have Summer like that. I also love the time by the sea when there is no one around. So peaceful.... Kids had fun, I can tell looking at the smiling faces! Wishing you GREAT Summer. And a lot of gorgeous pictures for us to see :-)
